Bill Maher Goes After Apple...and Corporate Crooks...
but really the problem is us and our inability to resist any glitzy sales pitch.

There's been a recent John Cleese interview. When asked if a comedian can change politics, he told the journalist to look at the scene of the Weimar republic and their ability to stop Hitler.

That's what comes to mind when some comedian attacks the system. Apart from the fact that we're talking about a multi millionaire here. Yes, he's right. But what's the point as long as the consumer buys the PR hype? Many of hte people laughing were probably checking their iphones moments later.

Well, yeah... that's the basis of the Drumpf campaign.  All hype - no substance.

The man maybe a multi-millionaire, but he sometimes does make a good point. He was right on point with Apple, a stylist that costs a hundred dollars? Really? If I'm paying a that much for a pen it better have been used to sign something important. How stupid can you be Apple people, your paying that much for a device without a head phone jack! It's your money, I get the feeling taking that option out will bite them in the ass.

Apple isn't the first company to manufacture a phone without a headphone jack.

Apple isn't the first company to manufacture a phone without a headphone jack.

     I'm aware, some of the newer phones use the USB-C style inputs for headphones, but it's been a standard feature for a very long time in electronics. Laptops, tablets, desktops, ect. It's a very useful feature as well, I use my headphones on a daily basis and I won't use wireless or blue tooth bases accessory's for my devices You lose sound quality and it is not secure, it's just another way to reinvent the wheel.

I prefer phones with the headphone jack and that's exactly why I don't plan on upgrading to the iPhone 7 any time soon. I currently own an iPhone 6 and it suits my needs fine. I just hate it when some people make it out like Apple are the first company to do it.

Having said that, I do agree that they are making a huge mistake by removing the headphone jack.

         I never said they were the first company to do it, their just one the biggest company's to do it.
